Given the impact on suicide for those left behind the course was delivered with such sensitivity and thought provoking too. It was really good to get a feel of what people experience and that we are not alone in the various amount of feelings when a loved one takes their own life. The statistics are difficult especially around those who are at risk of taking/attempt to take their own life and consideration has to be given to the people who did not know the person either. The course will help me when we look at challenges others are going through when they come to use our services that we look to open the forum not just to family but to friends and others who have been impacted by a person who has taken their own life. If we can look to align all services I am really hopeful that one day suicide won’t be as prevalent as it is today.
